More like Boringship. Such an empty film. The complete lack of interest I had caused my mind to wander and examine whether the film was worthy of depicting some of the scenes it shows. I've never been affected by silly CGI carnage, but it felt so wrong for a film so completely devoid of any worth to be showing, relatively realistically, a comet crashing into Hong Kong and all the devestation that would cause.

The initial pitch for what would become Battleship could not have been any more complicated than "How about a film where stuff explodes?". Then Hasbro got involved and someone wrote aliens into the script as a joke that got taken seriously, and somehow Rihanna ended up in there as well.

Plus Liam Neeson was barely in it and no one said "You sunk my battleship".

I don't know why you said that.

I heard it was actually a fun watch, though I can usually find something to like in any movie.

The bit where they get all the 70 year old veterans to operate the antique battleship to fight the aliens was slightly amusing.

i saw it this weekend too, and it actually is a pretty fun movie to watch.


story is major crap, but somehow it didn't matter, I had a blast seeing this movie. it has some very subtle humor at times, a great rock soundtrack and it has great action scenes.

That sounds about as subtle as Ivy's cleavage.

It looked a lot like Transformers Dark of the Moon to me, in that it was lots of soulless yet spectacular battle sequences. Fun for a few minutes, but not for two and a half hours. And yes, DotM was garbage.
